Hi! What's up? My dad always had this idea about running a small ranch. So few years back he opened a place in the continental Croatia. In the middle of the nature park "Lonjsko Polje". Beautiful, largest protected wetland in the entire Danube basin (from Germany to the Black Sea). Rich in biodiversity, providing home to many indigenous species. Surrounded by super cool local people, loads of beer, shots and parked cars on a stairway, our story is a place where you can enjoy your rare moments of complete relaxation while being delighted in our two hundred years old oak restaurant house.
We need you because we have horses on the ranch. I have some basic skills but we need someone to help out with far more experience. Therefore, we are looking for a thick skinned individual who is eager to blend and thrive in our small community.
If you feel adventure ready with an awesome horse handling skills willing to teach other people about it, please contact me. My name is Hrvoje and I'm the first person you will step in touch with. I will provide all the information, bits on the fields below or on any questions you may have.
We only accept candidates with knowledge and experience in working with the horses. Everyone's safety is our number one concern.
